The outcome of biportal endoscopic spinal surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis in Indonesia: A single-center experience

Abstract

Background: Biportal endoscopic spinal surgery (BESS) is a recent breakthrough in spine surgery, utilizing a minimally invasive procedure for treating various spine problems. One of the most common indications for BESS is degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). However, there has been no study regarding the outcome of the BESS procedure on LSS patients in Indonesia. This study aimed to determine the outcome of BESS procedures for LSS in a single pain center in Indonesia.

Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study to determine the outcome of the BESS procedure for LSS patients in Indonesia. This study was done in Doctor Indrajana Clinic, Jakarta, Indonesia, from August 2021 to May 2022. The inclusion criteria for this study were all LSS patients aged ³ 18 years old who underwent the BESS procedure. Subjects with a history of other spine surgery, having malignancy, or having successive surgery were excluded from the study. Pain score, motoric function, autonomic function, and postoperative complications were analyzed.

Results: A total of 133 LSS patients were recruited for the study. There was a significant reduction in leg and back pain following the BESS procedure (p < 0.05). There was an improvement in motoric function, autonomic function, and stability following the procedure. Only a few subjects had postoperative complications (8.3%) following the surgery

Conclusion: Biportal endoscopic spinal surgery is a feasible and safe alternative for lumbar spinal stenosis therapy in Indonesia.
